The model - a photograph of a pre-production model appeared on the Concorde Hobby Shop website on 6th October. Subsequent details and the above photograph were received on 7th October. The model is set to be released later this month. It has not been commissioned by New World First Bus and is not being distributed by them. It has, however, been licensed by them. The model was actually released on 3rd November 2008. At the time of it's announcement, it was believed that Model Bus Evolution had become Model Bus Revolution, however, the packaging on the model states Model Bus Evolution. 

The bus - DA93 is one of four Dennis Dragons acquired by New World First Bus in September 1999 from HACTL (Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Ltd.). These four buses were first registered in 1996 and were used for non-franchised work and carried no destination equipment. Whilst in the ownership of HACTL, they were maintained by Citybus.
